Abstract:Coopetition, the concept of cooperation and competition at the same time, is getting more popular in recent scientific literature. An additional concept that this paper tries to connect with coopetition is the distinction between low tech industries and high tech industries. In literature it is not clear whether the coopetition in low tech industries differs from the coopetition in high tech industries. This research will contain a literature review to get a clear understanding of the coopetition in different kind of industries. The paper will first explain the scope of coopetition, after which the advantages and disadvantages of coopetition will be discussed. Three low tech industries and three high tech industries will be researched, based on characteristics of the industry, to see how coopetition is experienced in extreme industries. With these six example industries a comparison can be made between the two extreme industries. With the outcome of this research companies can improve decisions whether coopetitive relationships are needed and what is common in extreme industries.
